    Exe closing too fast after completion

    Im just now starting into C++ and after trying out the code in the tutorials, compiling, and running the exe, it works fine until it the program is done. It just shuts down without letting me read the output. I think I remember a fix for this in a magazine somewhere, but I can't remember where. Any help would be appriciated.

    Im running Windows 98SE.

    Is there a way to do it besides having to press enter?

    Code:
    #include <conio.h>
    (whatever other includes)
    
    int main
    {
      ...
      ...
      getch();
      return 0;
    }
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    What XSquared said will work, but it depends on your compiler. Conio.h is non-standard. Take moi's original advice and read the FAQ. It provides several solutions and explains the pros/cons of each.

    Use the command prompt.
